Atlanta-based SEO specialist Nate Shivar recently put the search bar to the test and looked into the feelings surrounding the U.S.'s 50 biggest cities. He lists the top four entries; we've pasted the top 10 above, although the first four kinda sum it up well.

The results to the search query "Why is Cleveland so" are fairly damning. In fact, while some cities garner at least a few positive phrases, Cleveland gets NONE.

Scene wrote about some more Google fun back in 2010, when the likes of Eric Mangini and Jimmy Dimora were still garnering local searches.
